Fremantle Port, Western Australia

FREMANTLE Port Authority operates multiple analogue and digital IP surveillance systems within port boundaries which record approximately 150 cameras that view industrial operations, restricted maritime areas and monitor assets.

Fremantle Ports also operates a Jacques IP intercom system for communication purposes between gate/turnstile points and a control room located in the administration office building. The organisation is seeking to implement an integrated security platform of electronic surveillance, access control and voice intercom throughout the inner and outer harbours.

The integrated security platform is to utilise IP connectivity across existing Fremantle Port Authority networks with application servers and databases residing on virtual servers located in a remote data centre. Primary control of these systems is located at FPA administration building control room.

Fremantle Ports currently operates 2 independent access control systems (Siemens SiPass) – the administration access control system, managing access throughout the administration building (1 Cliff Street, Fremantle); and the maritime access control system, managing access to maritime security boundaries in the inner harbour (Fremantle) and outer harbour (Kwinana).

The 2 access control systems are to be consolidated into a single access control system and interfaced into the security platform. The upgrade is also to consolidate the various surveillance systems into a single vision management system interfaced into the security platform. The existing VOIP solution is to be upgraded and interfaced with the security platform. The tender closes June 13, 2018.

The Inner Harbour includes northern and southern wharves named North Quay and Victoria Quay and the whole is managed by the Fremantle Port Authority, a government trading enterprise. The inner harbour handles a large volume of sea containers, vehicle imports and livestock exports, cruise shipping and naval visits, and operates 24 hours a day.
